Question of the Week: Loran-C in the Age of WAAS/GPS


This Week’s Question |Previous Week’s Answers


Welcome back to AVweb‘s "Question of the Week," where we take the pulse of the aviation community on the news topics of the day.

Back before our Sun ‘n Fun polling hiatus, we asked readers for their opinion on the FAA’s decision to allow more tolerance in active pilots’ use of antidepressants under "special issuance" certificates. 39% of those who responded said yes, they support the FAA’s decision, which is actually long overdue. At the other end of the spectrum, 21% of respondents said absolutely not; no mental incapacity has any place in the cockpit.
